Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros-Home (Party Supplies Remix)

Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros have gone from being a tiny little indie band to now being on a nonstop tour that is seemingly intent on reaching every town in the US by the end of this year. If they come anywhere near you, see them. The joy of living that appears in their songs can not hold a candle to the sight of the new-age hippies dancing and singing on stage. The seemingly countless Zeros put everything they can into a show that was my favorite of Coachella 2010, and one of the most fun concerts I've ever been to.

But you will likely only see the merry band once, maybe twice, in your life. And no matter how good "Up From Below" was, songs get old with time and relentless replays on the ipod. My favorite memories to the album have been on road trips with friends, funky dance parties, and listening to it in my room, big smile on my face. Good times. Because that's the type of music Eddy Sharpe and the Zeros make. Music that makes you feel good.

This remix by Party Supplies should make you feel good. Make you wanna dance. Make you wanna walk down the street with a little more bounce in your step.The bass line remains the same, the whistling is there, the trumpet, but other than that, this remix is a complete flip of the original, breaking the original into a fragmented kaleidescope of a song. But somehow, it manages to completely capture the essential essence to "Home" which has made it so popular. Although many remixes want to drown out the original, this remix lets the original shine. And although it's impossible to top the original, this jamandahalf doesn't try to, but glistens regardless.
